Ibeshamed: You're pulling for that SUV to go to Mexico. Admit it. Also, I don't see any "chicken hawks" pulling for our military to intervene in Ukraine. Where are these hawks?"
It's as I stated earlier. VW holds the key to all of this with just one announcement. If they decide to build it here then Corker is vindicated, if they decide not to then Corker becomes the liar.
As for the chickenhawks and teabaggers who want war, they are here everyday spouting off about how weak President Obama is because he's not invading some country or he's not threatening Putin with military action. Chickenhawks, Teabaggers and RWNJ's are too stupid and ignorant to realize what a war with Putin would mean. Putin is not Saddam Hussein and PRESIDENT OBAMA IS NOT GEORGE W. BUSH(THANK GOD)of the bomb now ask questions later type.
Reading the comments from Fister and reading the various "Conservative" scribble on the web, it seems most of them feel it would end with Putin kicking Obama's ass, in a match kind of like the Ivan Drago versus Apollo Creed bout in Rocky IV. It seems that a lot of them, including Fister, have a man-crush on Putin. They love gazing at the photos of Putin sans shirt."
They are too ignorant to realize this would not be a replay of Rocky IV. Instead it would be more like a scene from the TV movie "The Day After" a nuclear holocaust in which no one would win.
Corker won by margin the SECOND time he ran for his seat in the U.S. Senate. The first time he ran he lost in the CITY OF CHATTANOOGA(THE PLACE WHERE HE HAD BEEN MAYOR) to Harold Ford, Jr. and he did not win by that same margin against Ford. If not for upper East Tennessee he would not have won that seat.
President Obama, with a stroke of the pen, a sensitive issue these days, beat the Republicans to the punch, by imposing sanctions on those responsible for the problems in Ukraine this morning."
What is most amazing about this whole incident is the number of chickenhawks who want President Obama to use some kind of military force against Putin. These people seem to always be looking for the next WAR for the United States to become engaged in. Most of the ones usually beating the drums for war have NEVER been in a war. Instead they have watched from the sidelines as someone else or someone else's sons or daughters have gone off to war. Do they really believe starting a war with Putin would end without the use of Nukes?
President Obama uses drones alot more than I would like for him to use them but he's not weak when it comes to protecting the interests of the United States. He never has been and as the old saying goes: "The pen is mightier than the sword."
All VW has to do at this point is to announce where the SUV will be built. If it's Chattanooga then Corker will be vindicated, however if it's not Chattanooga then Corker will be made to look the liar. VW can squelch all of this with just one announcement and it won't matter if there's another vote for or against the UAW. VW holds the key to how this will end for Bob Nissan Corker and the rest of that bunch. Ironically VW has always held the key.

This from the same person who wrote Trayvon Martin must have been a member of a Union.
KUDOS TO MR. BENNETT
Bennett won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, and has been a finalist for the Pulitzer seven times.
Arafat and Obama both won the Nobel Peace Prize so there is that as examples of the standards for contemporary prize committees.
The lions on the Serengeti do come to the water holes to drink but more importantly is that their food supply does so as well... However at this “water hole” the Conservatives are only offered Fleabagger intellectual junk food....LMFAO!!"
Exactly how many Nobel Prizes have you won or even been nominated for? But let's not stop there exactly how many Pulitzer Prizes have you won or been nominated for? The best you can do is cut and paste from some right wing rag like Brietbart.com or copy something from some nutjob sitting behind his computer making up crap as he goes for someone like you to cut and paste as research. LOL You have nothing to offer that's original. You think you're a lion?? HAHAHAHAH
It's miracle you have lasted this long.
I'm open to life elsewhere. only problem I have is, since they are generally presumed to be advanced, why haven't they dialed up for at least a chat?"
One of my favorite movies is "Battleship" In the movie scientists have built this device that sends signals deep into space. One scientist has been against sending these signals because he's pretty much afraid they will be answered. He explains his fear by saying if there is a life form out there and they have the capability to get here it will be like Columbus and the explorers discovering the New World and the Indians, only this time we'll be the Indians and we will be the ones conquered.
It makes some sense because any alien form that has the intelligence and the capability to get here would have to far exceed what we have here on earth.

I assume from your avatar you got your ashes on your forehead today. Can't remember the last time I got my forehead rubbed with the ashes. I keep saying I'm going but somehow never make it.
And now for a pause from our regularly scheduled debate: Science vs Fantasy
KUDOS TO MR. BENNETT
Clay Bennett, editorial cartoonist for the Chattanooga Times Free Press, this week was named the finalist for the 2014 Herblock Prize.
The national prize is awarded annually by the Herb Block Foundation for "distinguished examples of editorial cartooning that exemplify the courageous independent standard set by Herblock,"
The judges noted, "Clay Bennett is a master of the surprising visual metaphor. His clean, elegant drawings convey his strong opinions with deceptive simplicity."
*Bennett won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, and has been a finalist for the Pulitzer seven times.
And he keeps the nutjobs climbing the walls around here. LOL
